Hey,

 

Not all CQ43 notebooks came with built in bluetooth.

 

What model wifi adapter does your notebook have?

 

The model wifi adapter is what provides bluetooth if it is a combination wifi/bluetooth adapter.

 

If you don't know, go to the device manager, click to expand the Network adapters device manager category, and there you will find the name and model number of the wireless network adapter.

There's no model identifier on the Broadcom card?

 

Not all of those cards had bluetooth either.

 

If your notebook has the BCM4313, that should be a combination wifi/bluetooth card, so the only suggestion I can offer, would be to install the W8.1 Broadcom bluetooth driver for that model wifi card.

It's the only one that will work if your notebook has a Broadcom wifi card with bluetooth.
